How Form Sheet Metal
Sheet metal is a durable and useful material. You can use it in many of your building projects. However, attempting to bend sheet metal can be a pain. Sheet metal brake or folding machines can be expensive. In this video, you will learn how to bend sheet metal without an expensive machine.
First, source your sheet metal from a metal supply warehouse. They can provide you with excellent materials for your project. Once you have your sheet metal, mark the metal where it should bend. This will act as a guide during the bending process. Next, place the sheet metal on a secure surface and clamp it securely.
The first method is to bend the metal by hand. This method requires some effort and may not be as accurate. The next method is to use a hammer. After bending the sheet metal as much as you can by hand, use a hammer to tap the area where the bend originates. This is a much more accurate process. However, there still may be a few dents. Lastly, this method can be improved by using a roller in place of a hammer.
